  • Abstract

    In these surveys respondents in both the United States and Japan offered opinions on national and international issues. Respondents in the United States were asked to evaluate Reagan's performance as president, United States naval actions off the coast of Libya, and the situation in Latin America with special emphasis on Nicaragua. They were also asked to compare the Democratic and Republican parties. In addition, American respondents were asked a series of questions relating to United States-Japanese relations, restrictions on imports, the trade imbalance, the upcoming economic summit in Tokyo, United States relations with its allies, and its position in international trade. Japanese respondents were asked to respond to this last series of questions with a few variations. They were also queried regarding their political orientation and their support or nonsupport for the Nakasone cabinet. Both surveys contain demographic information on respondents.
